  1. Hello,

    After proceeding with your steps at the final stage i get Cannot logon error between domains
    Is there something i miss? Also when i follow your instructions i dot see the windows showed in images 9 and 10.

    Both of my servers run under:
    Windows server 2008 r2 enterprise
    Exchange server 2010 sp1

    All I want to move the users from first server to my newly installed server. If there is another way for moving all the accounts from source server to destination server would save me a lot of time asking experts will help me a lot thanks 🙂
